Simplicity is sophistication

Good morning! Stopping by to share a card with one of the new Phyllis Harris stamps that released last week from Unity Stamp Company - I always love these beautiful images, and look forward to playing with them! I also have a Quick Tip video below, showing a fun way to add a bit of texture to an image on vellum using an embossing tool.

Here is that video:

Here is a closer look at the texture achieved with this technique:

So hard to make it show in the pictures, but totally fun in real life! You can also see it well at the end of the video. So simple, and an easy card to mail - just attached the vellum with a line of machine stitching over my pattern paper, and attached that to my card base.

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!


  1. I think your card says it all Heather! I am loving how you are showing how you don't have to color these with a bazillion copics for hours on end and yet they are still so stunning!

  2. Hi Heather, this is unbelievable and so very clever! I love how you've left this fabulous image do all the talking. Thanks for this wonderful video, now I've got to go try it...fingers xed. x

  3. so simple yet so elegant, love it!

  4. This is such a sweet image! Your CAS treatment is perfect!
